      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one.

The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Fiesta Zetec 10 Plate - Niggles

    Just traded in a lovely 09 Fusion for a 10 Fiesta and before getting it off the forecourt there were a couple of issues mainly relating to paintwork and not replacing the foam spare with a real spare! Having driven it home, the brakes felt a bit "spongey" so arranged to take it back in a couple of weeks when I am off work to have them fixed but a couple more faults have developed. 1 - indicator. The right indicator light comes on with the slightest touch and also when coming out of a full left turn. It should allow me to just have a three blink option rather than a full on right but when using that it stays on even after straightening. Is this a loose connection or something more serious? 2 - Key fob opens boot even whilst driving. THe car came with two fobs - one barely used, the other heavily used. I thought the first time it was just me accidentally hitting the button when starting with a new fob. The boot doesnt open completely but it shows as open on the dashboard. Again is this an electrical fault or battery issues? 3 - Air Vent. When I went to put something in the glove box after getting the car home, the passenger air vent fell off! Should this have been picked up during the service? Overall I have several issues with the garage which they have agreed to look into but what rights do I have to make sure that the car is given back in a condition where I dont have to see them again until the next service?! I also have a dispute with them over the Warranty that I was sold with the Fusion 14 months ago which I took out for 36 months at a cost of £800 inc vat but have now been told I cant claim back the balance (never told this when I took it out or when I went to PX as I specifically asked and was told I could transfer!) Is it worth me holding out for a bit of compensation or cutting a deal for a free Diamondbrite and full tank of fuel (which they have already offered?!)
  2. Fusion Dog Guard

    I am picking up my 09 Fusion on Saturday 27th Sept but need to find a dog guard quick! Does anyone have an opinion on this one from Halfords: http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_storeId_10001_catalogId_10151_productId_377107_langId_-1_categoryId_165716 The car specs are 1.6 Titanium 09 reg 5 dr The dog specs are 2 1/2yr old 38kgs choc lab! I would prefer to get one that allows me to keep the parcel shelf in place when the dog isnt in the car Thanks Bally Doyle
